Nourishing the Mind

“We cannot measure the influence that one or another artist has upon the child’s sense of beauty,
upon his power of seeing, as in a picture, the common sights of life;
he is enriched more than we know in having really looked at even a single picture.”

-Charlotte Mason


The girls were working on a picture study of Monet’s work this week in our one room school house … and new chalk pastels were introduced with a resounding welcome. Little and big hands were kept happy and busy as they quietly created lovely artwork this fall morning. The once-noisy morning slowed, textbooks were put away and classical music was played.

So thankful to have this opportunity to school at home with the children.
I can’t imagine all the time that I would have lost with them if they were in a traditional school setting.
Grateful for blessings such as home education.

“Art is a wonderful way to add variety in your day,
and to nourish your children’s mind and heart with what is good, noble and beautiful.”
